How to Save Money with a Zone Control HVAC System

Are you running up your energy bill but still not getting the home comfort you crave? Are you experiencing hot and cold spots in your home? Are you tired of fighting with your family over control of the thermostat?

If you feel like the air in your home is going to waste, there’s a better solution. A zone control system might be the solution you’ve been hoping for.

What Is a Zone Control System?

Simply put, a zone control system is a network of dampers we install into your home’s ductwork to control the flow of air to each room. These dampers then open and close to allow air into the room with each zone controlled by its own independent thermostat.

It’s a simple enough concept, but it will revolutionize the way you heat and cool your home.

How A Zone Control System Saves You Money

Zone control systems are designed to help you maximize your home’s energy efficiency. Instead of paying through the nose to heat and cool your entire house, you have complete control over the amount of warm or cool air that goes into each room. If you have rooms in your home that you don’t often use, zone control might be the perfect solution.

For example, if you don’t use the dining room, spare bedrooms, or laundry room very much, you can choose to redirect your airflow into places that you do use. That way, the environment in the living room, kitchen, hobby room, and master suite will be the way you like it, and you won’t be cooling or heating empty space.

Use Your Existing Ductwork

You can install zone control to your existing HVAC, so the cost of entry is reasonable. Your technician will add dampers and a master control panel to your system, and you’ll be good to go. Hiring a reputable HVAC company will ensure that the installation goes off without a hitch.

How We Do It

Your HVAC technician will help you decide how best to split your home into zones. Then, a thermostat is installed into each zone, and all zones are wired together back to a central control panel.

The electronic dampers we install in the ductwork are attached to the control panel, allowing you to change the airflow as needed.

The result? No more hot and cold spots in your home, even temperature, and improved comfort

or the entire household. Since each zone is independently controlled, you can get back to more important things, like who has control over the TV remote.

More Good News About Zone Control

Zone control can also save your HVAC over the long-term. Your system won’t have to work as hard; parts won’t wear out as quickly, so you’ll save on maintenance and energy bills. You’ll have more money in your pocket, more air where you want it, and maybe some good feelings about saving the planet too.
